Giving the Gift of Fishline

What to get for the person who has everything?  Searching for the perfect Christmas present always adds stress to this time of the year.  Here are some unique gift ideas that would benefit not only the recipient, but NK Fishline and the neighbors that are helped through our efforts:

Food for Thought
Food for Thought is a NK Fishline program providing weekend meals for children in need in the North Kitsap Community.  You can read more about program here.  By becoming a Backpack Friend, a person can sponsor one child for a period of one month, semester, year, or for a one month long sponsorship for an entire school! Consider a sponsorship in someone's name as a Christmas gift that will go a long way!  We can send a gift card letting the person know that a child has been sponsored in their name for the holiday!

 Click here to sponsor a child for one month: $25
 Click here to sponsor a child for one semester: $100
 Click here to sponsor a child for one year: $250
 Click here to commit to a one month-long sponsorship for an entire school : $1000
 Click here to make a donation in any amount to the Food for Thought program.

When asked to enter "special instructions," you can let us know that you would like to sponsor a child and the name and address of the person you are gifting the sponsorship to.  By giving this gift,  you will gain the satisfaction of knowing you have helped a child grow into his/her potential and invested in a community where all have the basics of life.

Holiday Baskets 

Donate a Christmas dinner on behalf of your gift recipient.  We have a list of items and the quantities that can go in the baskets. Just let us know how many families you would like to sponsor. The baskets are distributed through NK Fishline and your loved one would receive a card indicating that a basket was donated in their name.  

Toy shop: Fishline will again sponsor a toy shop for clients to come and shop for toys for their children. Donations of new toys, books, or games will be accepted. Also keep in mind older kids with donations of gift cards. Gift items can be dropped off at many local businesses until Dec 6 or directly to Fishline up to Dec. 11th.


Monetary donations are always welcome. When you donate on someone's behalf to NK Fishline during the holidays, the money can go towards food for the food bank, Christmas baskets, or toys for the Toy Shop. Click here to donate thru Paypal.  You can also mail your donation to NK Fishline, 18916 NE Third Ave, Poulsbo, WA  98370. 

Give the Gift of Volunteering

Volunteering as a family is a great gift for parents and kids alike.  At NK Fishline, you can spend time together during this busy season, teach your kids the value of service, and contribute to the community, all in one place.  We are also always looking for volunteers to help set up the Toy Shop and pack and distribute the food baskets. Contact our volunteer coordinator to learn more.
